The next North West Early Modern Seminar will be hosted by the University of Liverpool on 1st November 2017. We are currently looking for speakers to present brief 5 minute papers related to their research interests, in any discipline, in the early modern period.
Previous speakers have presented papers on topics as diverse as the early modern origins of sign language, the many faces of the Elizabethan pirate, notions of settlement and their development in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and the language of value in seventeenth and eighteenth-century auction advertisements. The five minute slots are ideal for presenting work in progress, new projects, or for PhD students wanting to gain experience in presenting.
The application process will be conducted on a “first-come-first-served” basis.
If you wish to volunteer please send your name, institution and the title or subject area of your paper to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on 29th September.
We look forward to hearing from you and hope you will feel free to promote the CFP and event at your own institutions.
